How important is the outer casework of your audio equipment? For me, it matters a great deal.
I want the outside to reflect what’s inside.
And yet I can just as easily turn those feelings off and enjoy the performance of a new design that’s built on top of a piece of plywood.
I suppose it comes down to expectations. If I am presented with a prototype I turn off the side of me that wants to equate inner and outer qualities.
Once I am in the mode of evaluating a complete package, my feelings toward the product are a reflection of both its inner working and outer expression of quality.
I know it’s in fashion to say “it’s all about the inner beauty” but truth be told, that’s just not true for me.
I gotta have it all.
